5 Stocks That Could Hike Their Dividends

Posted by D4L | Sunday, November 03, 2013 | | 0 comments »

Dividend stocks are great because in addition to profiting from any upward moves in the stock price, the quarterly payouts sweeten the pot. Many investors also prefer to reinvest their dividends to buy more shares instead of taking the cash -- which can help the value of their portfolio grow further.

But investors who simply chase the stocks with the biggest dividend yields -- which is the annual payment divided by the stock price -- often get burned when dividends are cut or eliminated. That's why you need to look for companies that have sustainable and growing dividends. Here are five more stable companies with low payout ratios, which should mean they can keep raising their dividends at an above-average clip for years to come: Apple (AAPL) yield of 2.4%, Cisco (CSCO) yield of 3%, Exxon Mobil (XOM) yield of 2.9%, Comcast (CMCSA) yield of 1.6% and Wal-Mart (WMT) yield of 2.5%.
